Welcome to Carers Week 2018 Staying Healthy & Connected


Carers Week is an annual campaign to raise awareness of caring, highlight the challenges carers face and recognise the contribution they make to families and communities throughout the UK.

When you’re caring for someone, it’s really important to make sure that you look after yourself too. There’s a lot of useful information out there for you and families as a carer. Caring can be very rewarding, but without the right support it can have a negative impact on your health, career, finances and relationships.


The Trust is a member of The Triangle of Care. One of the six elements of this is that staff are ‘carer aware’ and trained.

Have a look at our Nottinghamshire Healthcare Trust website pages for Carers, Families and Friends  Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust Carers Page

Watch the carer awareness film we made in partnership with carers and carer organisations, produced by Rob Glass at Coracle Films  @coraclefilms.
